Passion Week for Kids

Passion Week is not just the best time to take a vacation and relax from our mundane activities. It is also the best time to reflect, remember and worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ about what He has done for us on the cross and His Resurrection.

It is also the best time to teach our kids what this week is all about. It is the best time to share the Gospel to them. The best time to plant the seeds in their hearts of what the Savior had to go through so that you and I would be saved and freed from our sin. Continue reading

God is Holy (Part 1)

We started the year with a new series for our family devotionals – The Attributes of God. This series will give our kids the opportunity to know who our God is.

The Attributes of God is essential to our faith. It is the foundation of our faith. It is then important to intentionally teach this to our kids because this will answer the questions; who God is and why we should believe and trust God.

God’s Holiness is the first attribute we shared to them. Read more to know why we first discussed the holiness of God.

Key verse: Revelation 4:8 “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God the Almighty, who was, who is and who is coming.” Continue reading

Cooking With Love

During my single days, there was one place in our house that you’ll never find me in – the kitchen. I loved the dining place but not the kitchen. I loved food but not the preparation. I loved to eat but not to cook. And yes, not even the cleaning up. Despite all these, I am very good in cooking rice even without a rice cooker (wink wink).

When I got engaged with my husband whose Mom happens to be a superb cook, I remember my own mother warning Vincent about my weakness. But praise God, Vincent was kind enough to still accept me for who I am and marry me anyway. Haha! Continue reading

Teaching Kids to Tithe

Proverbs 3:9 “Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;”

Honoring the Lord with our wealth is not primarily a monetary issue but a heart issue. First of all, God doesn’t need our possessions and money. He is God. He is Self-Sufficient. He is the Creator of All and the Owner of everything. But giving a tenth or more from all that we earn is our act of worship towards God. In fact, it is the first visible act of worship. It is acknowledging that all that we have comes from the Giver of all good gifts – God. It is accepting that all that we have is not ours to possess. Most of all, it is confessing that money is not our god but the One who has given us all things. Continue reading
